One of my favorite sweet treats is Almond bark. You can use it in so many different ways, I always keep it on hand since it stores so well.
As I was grocery shopping last week, I stumbled across a package of mixed nuts with cranberries and raisins. The color combination was so pretty with the red cranberries and green tinted pumpkin seeds and pistachios that I had to put a package in my cart. After a trip down the baking aisle, I knew exactly what I would make with it… Holiday Bark
Making candy bark is so easy and is the perfect holiday treat to give to our neighbors. If you have never used White Almond Bark, it looks like this: (Sometimes the package says white almond bark other times it is called white bark or candy coating)
To make this candy, it really only takes a few minutes and just a few ingredients….
- 1 Package of White Candy Coating (use as much as you want, the whole package makes quite a bit)
- +/- 3 cups of your mixings (chopped nuts, dried fruit, candy, broken pretzels.)
- wax paper
- Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. Spread half of your mixings over the wax paper. Place candy coating in a microwave container and melt according to the directions on the package.
- Pour the melted chocolate over the mixings on the cookie sheet, spreading with spatula if needed to coat as evenly as possible. Sprinkle remaining mixings over the candy while it is still wet. (Try to press the mixings in just a bit so they will stick once the candy hardens. Let the candy sit for 20 to 30 minutes to harden.
- Gently break bark into small pieces.
Store in air tight container.
